Community-run, Distributed Social-network
Diaspora is a nonprofit, user-owned, distributed social network based upon three key concepts: Decentralization, freedom and privacy. Diaspora consists of independently owned pods (servers) that form a network. Disroot is just one node in that big network.

Diaspora* key philosophies:
Instead of everyone’s data being contained on huge central servers owned by a large organization, local servers (“pods”) can be set up anywhere in the world. You choose which pod to register with - perhaps your local pod - and seamlessly connect with the diaspora* community worldwide.
You can be whoever you want to be in diaspora. Unlike some networks, you don’t have to use your real identity. You can interact with whomever you choose in whatever way you want. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora is also Free Software, giving you liberty to use it as you wish.
In diaspora you own your data. You do not sign over any rights to an entity that can use and abuse it at will. Choose who sees what you share, using Aspects. With diaspora, your friends, your habits and your content are your business ... not ours!
